December’s Activity Book Winner

The holiday season brought in some of our best submissions yet. Winter break was a great time for little citizens to draw and create in their activity books. We had a hard time picking just one winner. But, without further ado….

Congrats to Olivia, age 7, who won December’s Activity Book Contest! We thought her viking was fierce and we absolutely loved the texture she created in the beard. Great job Olivia!

September Activity Book Contest Winner!

Back-to-school meant back-to-creating as the little citizens that submitted entries to our September Activity Book Contest wow-ed us with their unique styles and energetic art!

However, one little citizen stood out with his colorful monster picture. Congrats to Max who won this month’s Activity Book Contest! We thought his coloring was cool, textured and lots of fun!

We loved Olivia’s viking; how cool is the beard?

The last days of summer were highly creative for our Tea fans as we saw some of our best entries yet to our Activity Book Contest! As always, it’s hard to pick just one winner.

However, we couldn’t help but love Audrey’s robot! Her attention to detail and decorative flair on her robot won us over.

July’s Activity Book Winner

We were happy to dive right into our new fall season with our Nordic-inspired activity book.  We were even more happy to see all the great photos of our fans enjoying the new activity book! We have to say, this was by far the hardest month to pick a winner. There were so many amazing submissions that were all beyond creative!

This month, we say congrats to Kaili who colored the “Dress the Owl” activity book page.
